Increasing interactions between those with dementia and the police

The number of people with dementia is increasing exponentially. This is a side effect of the baby boomers aging and age being the biggest risk factor for dementia. It is also due to dementia leading to misinterpretations of events or even frank paranoia that lead people to call 911 as happened in Seattle.

As a community, this issue calls for more attention and interventions to prevent or ameliorate as many tragedies as possible.
